To find like minded Makers who I can share with and learn from.
Google searched "Hudson Valley Woodworking clubs" and found meetup.com
It is woodworking but more and more my interests are leaning away from "traditional" woodworking (i.e. tables and chairs) towards the concepts of making ANYTHING. I don't want to limit myself with just wood. I am also a proud geek so I like combining the two worlds. I am currently working on a wooden replica of Luke's landspeeder from Star Wars. :-)
I have build some basic shelves for my son's small room which is what got me into woodworking. I then build a trestle table with cube storage chairs for my kids as well (biggest project to date). I have plans for a Star Wars inspired frame which will incorporate plexiglass, LED edge lighting as well as other electronic components. Additionally I am just building up a YouTube channel as I want document and share these project online.
New to woodworking but also looking to expand my skills into new Maker areas like metal and electronics.
